The E-500 body has a "bayonet" twist & click attachment for the lens. There is no way that a simple screw threaded lens can attach to the camera directly.
The lens that you have are designed to screw into the front of the original Olympus lens.
I have seen some of these adverts on auction sites and they are worded something like "The wide angle / Tele lenses are simply mounted in the front of the Olympus EVOLT E-500 / E-330 / E-300 standard ZUIKO Digital EZ 14-45mm lens, or any other lens with 58mm filter thread."
Which maybe isn't clear enough.
So the bottom line is that you need an Olympus lens to use the other lenses you have bought.

The IR-500 has a thin body with a folded light path lens unit, which packs the 2.8x optical zoom power into the camera's exceptionally thin body. This, along with the 11x digital zoom combine for a seamless 30x total zoom.
